Perched on a cliff-top in the region’s most important port city, Mombasa, the main gateway to East and Central
Africa, this one of a kind four-bedroom villa comes with a 2.2 acre property, endless terraces on multiple
levels, 360° views of the open sea, an idyllic creek, swimming pool and a parkland-style garden.


With three out-door fresh water ponds, a croquet lawn large enough to land a helicopter, mature trees, and 40 years of planting
and pruning hundreds of exotic flowers, palms, orchids, ferns, creepers, lilies, cacti, mangoes, coconuts, baobabs, and every kind
of indigenous plant, the garden is impressive during both the rains and the dry season. It attracts more than 100 species of birds
and is one of the last safe havens in the area for two resident families of monkeys, the sykes and the vervet.

LONDON United Kingdom -- An impressive victory by Hellen Obiri highlighted the second day of action at the Muller Anniversary Games in London Stadium on Sunday. In one of the premiere showdowns of the afternoon, Obiri kicked away from Sifan Hassan with just over 200 metres to go to take the 5000m in 14:20.36, a meeting record and world-leading performance. The reigning world champion needed to utilize every bit of her notorious closing speed to hold off compatriot Agnes Tirop, who blew by the fading Hassan over the final 50 metres to finish second in 14:20.68. For Obiri, it was her second fastest performance ever and for the 23-year-old Tirop, a lifetime best. XINHUA PHOTOS - ALBERTO PEZZALI

Thimlich Ohinga Cultural Landscape is situated in Migori County in Kenya. It is a dry stone walling enclosure that reaches four metres high in some sections and two metres wide covering fifty two acres of land, with smaller inner enclosures that were probably cattle kraals. The walls are over 500 years old and the architectural technique used in its construction of using dry stones meticulously arranged without use of mortar is still a mystery. At Thimlich Ohinga three massive enclosures are interlinked. That is Kochieng, Kakuku and Koluoch enclosures. The monument was gazetted as a National Monument in 1981.

In March 2019 the Jeanne d’Arc Task Group, composed of FS LHD Tonnerre and FS La Fayette, acted in support to EU NAVFOR operation ATALANTA. Both ships observed Best Management Practices being implemented by the vessels off the coasts of Somalia, in order to deter piracy activities. In addition, a Falcon 50 aircraft from squadron 24F deployed in the area, as well as, an Alouette III helicopter from squadron 22S onboard Tonnerre maritime surveillance as well as reconnaissance missions were conducted. All these means and actions were paramount in order to maintain stability in the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean, zones with vital strategic maritime routes. It is worth nothing that, at the same time, this operation allowed 130 trainee officers to understand and learn of the organization of naval forces in an operational context. PHOTO - EU NAVFOR
